Hi

Im 19, and I will be traveling for 2 years around South-East Asia & Australia & Oceana from March 2012.

I have had no luck in finding a company willing to insure me as I will be traveling alone (backpacking) & I am only looking for a one off policy until my travels are over.

Does anyone have any suggestions :D

Are you serious?

Put "travel insurance for backpackers" into Google and you'll get dozens and dozens and dozens of options.

Cheers,
Terry

As a matter of fact, the travel forum that you're posting on right now (like almost ALL travel forums) has a section dealing specifically with insurance:

Try being 67 with medical problems and you'll understand how difficult it is to get low cost insurance.
I've just paid out almost £600 for my husband and I for 3 months travel and that was the cheapest in the market.
